Marty loves his Hawgs, but do they have to diss’ Captain Kirk?
Marty loves nothing more than bellying up to the sofa and television set with his favorite brand o’ suds and a good stogie as the Hawgs go on the march.
Adrien Peterson stomped all over the Arizona Cardinals this week and Marty’s favorite D.C. quarterback Alex Smith proved he could run an offense.
The Hawgs finished off the Cardinals in a fine style, but why afterward did I have to hear fans diss’ Captain Kirk Cousins.
The former Redskin great is now chewing up the scenerey in Minnesota and The High and Mighty wishes him only the best.
He will face off against The God-Man Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Heart Attack Packers.
Meanwhile the Hawgs have their hands full with a game against the mediocre Colts before they have to face the Heart Attack Pack.
Last week ole’ Marty went 14-3 and called several games within a touchdown so his prognostication skills cannot be beat. Let’s move on to this week:
The old Basso Profundo is picking this game as his game of the week. The old Catholic rivalry is about as good as it gets. This one takes place at Prep and you can bet your rosary this one will go down to the wire. But Marty’s going with the home of Gorsuch and Kavanaugh to upend the downtown Catholic boys near CNN.
Quince Orchard 28
The public school game of the week features a couple of up county heavy weights with stars in their eyes and playoffs in their hearts – or something like that. Going with the home crowd here because nothing is louder than a Q.O. home game.
Marty knows Rockville is better this year. Marty also knows which side his Jimmie cone is buttered on.
The Swarmin’ Hornets will sting.
Marty got surprised when Gaithersburg upset Seneca Valley last week. He’s pretty sure he won’t be surprised this week. But if Gaithersburg wins, then they’re for real.
Sherwood on the rebound and Einstein can figure out that equation.
Ain’t no way Einstein wins this one.
Walter Johnson 21
In the old days Marty would make a joke about Walter Johnson fielding the soccer team or the lacrosse team and then beating their own football team. Well it was funny to Marty.
Richard Montgomery hasn’t looked this bad – opening up 0-2 in at least a year or two. Maybe it was last week.
The only thing more painful than watching Northwood on the football field is watching a Trump rally without putting the television on mute.
Winters Mill 3
Now Marty knows good and well how good Winters Mill actually is. And he knows the farmers in Poolesville are usually more worried about their nearby U-pickem farms.
But here’s the thing, Marty has a soft spot in his hard heart for the plow boys who make peach picking fun, so he can’t pick against them when they’re at home.
The High and Mighty wants to believe. I mean Marty really wants to believe that after years of mediocrity that Wheaton will beat the refried beans out of somebody and start out 3-0. He wants to believe it now.
Remember when Magruder was the redneck monsters of the Midway in Montgomery County? Yeah, neither does Marty.
Seneca Valley 10
Marty also has a soft spot in his heart for Fred Kim and his boys at Seneca Valley. It’s a school with a storied tradition, but it’s fallen on hard times and with low recruiting numbers, Kim can’t keep his boys fighting against the more powerful schools. Northwest is kryptonite to S.V.
Watkins Mill 21
Absolutely no truth to the rumor that Watkins Mill will sport Izod game uniforms and come out playing basketball. But it might help.
Paint Branch 35
Yeah, sure Whitman has some talent. But Marty’s looking at the calendar and it is way too early in the season for Paint Branch to choke. Check sometime after midseason. But probably through homecoming they’ll be okay.
Good Counsel 28
St. Joe’s 7
The Falcon’s are among the finest in the land and they’ll be on top once again. Book it. Bank it. So let it be written. So let it be done.
Boy’s Latin 10
Veni Vidi Vici. Landon will conquer the invading Latin club and get them to conjugate several verbs in the process.
Last week Avalon’s game came crashing down in the pouring rain while they were up against Severn 8-0.
The Black Knights say it is a win while Severn claims the game was canceled.
Who knows? But Marty knows this much the “Catholic Lites” at Episcopal will give Avalon a decisive lesson in losing.
